. they did try to get the repeal of massachusetts health reform on to the ballot for a statewide vote. and it works in massachusetts like it does in every state. you need to get your ballot language approved by the state, then you need to get a certain number of signatures, but if you clear that number of signatures and it turns out enough of those signatures are real people, then your repeal thing goes on the ballot and people get to vote on whether or not to repeal that law. the repeal romney care folks never got to the end of that process, because they got distracted. see, the whole effort to repeal health reform in massachusetts seems to have actually been kind of a pet project, maybe a side interest, for one single anti-abortion group in that state. and even though the group said they really wanted to repeal romney care and they got the repeal romney care url and they got the website up and everything, they ended up losing interest. i think, because massachusetts decided that they were going to consider a doctor-assisted suicide measure, and that excited the anti-abortion people
our first guest tonight is elizabeth warren, a senator from massachusetts who is making democrats do back flips over the effect she is having on the democratic party, and she could be a big part of the next round of national democratic leadership for 2016 and beyond. senator elizabeth warren is our guest live in just a moment. >>> and in washington, though, this was the remarkable scene outside the home of republican house speaker john boehner early this morning. it is dark in these images because it started before dawn on the sidewalk in front of his house on capitol hill. and it carried on into the early morning light this morning. as young activists were bold enough to go to john boehner's doorstep to try to increase the pressure for him to allow a vote on immigration reform. this footage is from nbc latino, which covered the action this morning. >> what we're protesting here -- >> the reason why is because we have the vote for immigration reform. there is still time left in the calendar, in the congressional calendar. and the only thing stopping us is him. >> it is true that the
? >> right. the white house continues to point to massachusetts where 123 people enrolled in the program the first month. that number steadily grew. >> speaking of massachusetts, i thought it was fascinating yesterday, the same man that accused mitt romney of killing a woman, remember that? mitt romney killed my wife. remember that commercial? he was such a beast, a horrible human being. mitt romney killed my wife. barack obama believed that. >> obama did not claim that. the president did not say that. >> hillary clinton wasn't running against him in 2012. >> this commercial was put together by some sort of arm. >> somebody very close to barack obama. barack obama takes responsibility, the buck stops with barack obama. >> okay. >> barack obama and his campaign and people connected to his campaign and people closely associated with him in the past claimed that mitt romney killed a woman. >> okay. the story is bad enough, you don't need to do that. >> can i please make my point? i'm going to say it again, barack obama, his campaign, they all claimed in 2012. it was one of the most horrific
of massachusetts and that was changed as a national symbol. kennedy made it romantic and republicans were able to reduce it to harvard, symbolic out of the mainstream, too smart for prime time sort of thing. we both know boston is far more than harvard. scott brown is very much massachusetts just as elizabeth warren is. and i can see a guy like chris christie coming out of somewhere, southy or some other area in the greater boston area, like massachusetts is so much more than we were tagged dukakis. >> that gets to -- the reason i like michael dukakis, if somebody is wondering, why does he care about dukakis 25 years later? i think he gets one of the worst raps and unfair raps of any sort of modern major political figure. part of what you're saying about massachusetts is this idea of him being the harvard brookline tech no craft, volvo, wine and cheese, that's the label -- this image that stuck around him. i think it's tremendously unfair. not who he is. if you look at his rise in massachusetts, he appealed to the first generation and second generation pride, families off the boat struggling t
under the health care reform law that massachusetts enacted in 2006 under governor romney. >> we can reasonably expect the numbers will grow substantially over the next five months as they did in massachusetts which enrolled only .3%. or 123 people in its first month. we know from experience in the bay state that people tend to research and kid theconsider th options talk things over with their families before making a purchase. >> joining me now, from "the washington post," and professor of economics at mit who worked on the massachusetts health care reform law and -- the affordable care act. okay, professor, it is up to you to tell us how -- the affordable care act is doing, compared to the early days of the massachusetts law. >> the big issue, it is too early to make a strong conclusion. the bottom line is people don't sign up until they have to. >> we are doing better than massachusetts. as secretary sebelius said .3% in massachusetts. 1 1/2% of the federal level. goal of 7 million. that is not a relevant comparison. relevant comparison happen in march. we need new focus on not t
for the wrong reasons. mostly, the part of massachusetts where i'm fro didn't get any attention. when i was 12 years old, it got a lot, a lot of very positive reasons. it is because of this guy, paul tsongas. he had gone into local politics and in 1992, he was running for president. this is just when i was starting to get interested in politics. i didn't know much about the difference between the two parties. i knew it was really cool that someone that lived a few miles from our house was running for the white housing, the most important job in the world. every afternoon, the lowell sun would land on our doorstep. i would devour the information on the trail. i really wanted him to win. he won new hampshire and maryland and bill clinton overwhelmed him. there were a lot of reasons that he beat tsongas that year. one thing i knew, clinton had gotten rough and pushed the line. i was mad at bill clinton. i'll admit, i held a bit of a grudge. fast forward to 2007. i am writing a column i am not doing tv. i am a nobody. i am in thousands of dollars for debt. with hillary clinton setting out to run f
someone who was an adviser involved, jonathan gruber, an economics professor at the massachusetts institute of technology and behind the massachusetts health care plan, romney care as you may know. so mr. gruber, professor gruber, these numbers are rather disappointing, i would think. do you think that the administration is going to be able to get the website up and running enough to make the 7 million enrollee projection needed by the spring? >> you know, i don't agree with the characterization it's disappointing. i think they're meaningless. look, when we open our system in massachusetts the first month the people could pay premiums and enroll, 123 people enrolled. by the end of the year, it was 36,000. that meant we got .3% of the people the first month. by that state the federal government did great, 1.3% of the people the first month. it's too early to say anything useful. the real deadline we have to focus on is march of next year. that's when the individual mandate kicks in. that's when people need to be signed up and what we saw in massachusetts was a large rush before the
there is no way obamacare would have ever passed. massachusetts might like their health care plan but all of the polls show it and president obama not only his approval rating personally but politically as well has gone down as a result of the rollout. >> the polls show they like the shutdown even less. we will be sitting here and i promise you it is going to cost republicans in the midterm. martha: we will bring you back and find out. what does the president do now, what does he say, that continues to be asked this morning. always good to see you. bill: can a 6'5", 320-pound professional football player be bullied? why did miami dolphins player say he walked away from his team and the other player on that team now suspended indefinitely? martha: investigation into benghazi now goes to the next level. one senator issuing a bold threat the white house unless congress get some answers finally. >> the fact is we have four dead americans because of a protest or because of guys out for a while decided to kill some americans? what difference at this point does it make? (dad) just feather it out
. >> i'm a psychotherapist ins massachusetts. i have a large group practice, very busy. >> have you ever had talk show hosts on the couch? >> i have to keep that under -- >> confidentiality. >> yeah. with higher co-pays, higher deductibles, lower reimbursement rates, higher premiums what happens to client care? clients literally cannot afford the affordable health care act. so therefore they don't go for treatments and therapists have to start dropping out because the lower reimbursement rates are so awful. i'm not talking about grub hungry therapists. i'm talking b about therapists who want to keep their lights on and help people. there is a grave concern here. >> i have a friend of mine. you are raising a good point. i have a friend that's a doctor. went to -- brilliant guy. great grades in high school. got into a great college. four years of college. four years of medical school. internship, residency. you have been through it. then you have to open an office, turn on the light bill. it's a lot of money. pay back the student loans. identifying with this? now because reimbursements are
vision of the law. what is happening basically in massachusetts right now can still happen across the country. i don't want to put -- i don't want to turn this into just blaming republicans. when obama says they fumbled the ball, he's right. this is ultimately the administration's responsibility for how botched the rollout and the website has been. i don't think what they anticipated was that 3 1/2 years after this law was enacted they wouldn't have gotten even the tiniest ounce of cooperation from republicans. when you compare that to massachusetts, when it became the law of the land in massachusetts, it stopped becoming a partisan issue. and there was a coming together of both sides to make the law work, to put public service campaigns together, to get people to vote, to get civic organizations engaged. something we haven't seen because this has been a contested political issue since march 2010. that's not the only reason. the administration deserves a ton of blame here and the future of this thing is in doubt right now. i would say that's an element of it. if they didn't fully
helped write the massachusetts health care law. professor gruber, this number, the 1.5% is what we've been wondering about since we first started hearing the stories about policy cancellations and people having to get new insurance and what we wanted to know is how many of these people will actually end up paying more? some estimates said maybe 5% but it turns out to be something very low. >> well, the main point, lawrence, is that most americans are simply not affected. most americans get their health insurance from their employer, the government are not affected. it's the roughly 4% of americans who buy health insurance on their own who could potentially see higher prices and of that, only about a third or about 1.5% of people actually end up paying more for their health insurance under this law. >> i want to put up a graph that indicates exactly what you said, i think one of our numbers in it might be slightly off but we have a graph showing that 80%, 80% are unaffected by the affordable care act in terms of their costs, 15% are the, are uninsured who will get health insurance t
in massachusetts, they put pictures like this on the wall. the loss to thieves nationally for supermarkets comes to $6 billion a year. the cost has to be made up somehow. >> if we aren't profitable we have to charge more for what we are selling. >> reporter: in many cases it is not the customers after the free stuffing, most of the theft that occurs at your grocery store happens right here at the checkout, at the hand of the employees. watch how this works. an overhead view of the cashier, items traveling past the bar code. see the red target. that is a turkey. what is happening right now, the cashier is suddenly jumping it around the scanner so it is not being rung up as a charge. although it is mixed in with other items that are. now, with the turkeys, some places really see a spike, as many as four times more turkeys heisted in november and december, than in the rest of the year combined. basically when you see that turkey being stolen, they have to sell 50 more turkeys to make up for the one that was given away for free. we asked maureen about what happens to the people who get caught? and w
. massachusetts teaches us some important lessons, some states are not going to want to follow. one lesson is health insurance is more expenlsive in massachusetts than anywhere else in the country. >> romney says obama care is a "one-sized fits all plan. he believes states should craft their own health care plans. >>> well, the healthcare.gov web site is back up. the site was down for extended maintenance to correct problems. the outage lasted about 12 hours. also, you can use a toll free number to sign up for hemt insurance. president obama weighs in today for terry mcauliffe. obama joins former secretary of state hillary clinton who have lent a hand this week. cnn's erin mcpike. >> reporter: the virginia's governor's race is always an off-year election. i wanted's always the year before the midterm election. so political watchers on both sides of the aisle pay close attention for what kinds of trends it can show them leading into the midterm elections. right now, democrats are hammering republicans. take a listen to what president obama said earlier today when he was trying to link ken c
of massachusetts and boston households. i covered the kennedy family throughout my career. they had a cautious choice to have no representation at the ceremony today. they don't like to talk about the assassination of kennedy. you mentioned jean kennedy smith at arlington to. ethyl was there on wednesday. look at this one, caroline kennedy, the surviving daughter of jack kennedy's family, she moved to tokyo recently to become the u.s. ambassador, and make no mistake about the timing. she went there just in recent days. she wanted to be out of the country and starting her new job so she didn't have to be part of this. but i will say here in dallas, you mentioned, they had the reputation of the city of hate. it's been a hard time for the city and the city deserves credit for the respectful ceremony despite some adverse weather conditions. >> it was beautiful. thank you so much in dallas. from the president to the former first lady, jacqueline kennedy. she was known really around the world for her exquisite taste in fashion. but it was that pink suit, one of her favorites, and she was wearing tha
about this they point to the state of massachusetts, there's the model. the state of massachusetts during the first month signed up barely over 100 people. this is the same thing. what is your reaction to that? is it the same thing? is it just a slow rollout? >> well the state of massachusetts didn't throw off more people every day than were able to sign up. the state of massachusetts didn't spend $600 million and have 3 1/2 years to get this ready. and just, i think it was yesterday, the governor of vermont took action to delay at least a month the implementation. this is a very liberal democratic governor in a very liberal state saying this isn't ready. if the administration had been honest about the figures on day one, day two, day three, the truth is, we would have already had some sort of a reasonable time out to give an opportunity for the american people to properly judge cost benefit and hopefully, reverse this terrible trend of throwing people off health care plans that they liked, that did in fact cover them and costs less. that is something that is going on every day in

*eus ago in massachusetts -- two days ago in massachusetts saying it is a pretty popular plan, they reined in the cost. it worked for massachusetts, why not the country? >> this is government trying to put this in practice. when is the last time you went to d.m.v.? you happy with that experience? now for health care you've got to go through the same mish. you've had the series of rolling crises. the rollout a disaster. you've got the upcoming cancellation probably of employer-provided policies. and now looming just out there, just ahead you've got a doctor crisis. >> what do you mean by a doctor crisis? >> doctors are fleeing anything to do with medicare, medicaid and the obama exchanges. >> why? >> because they are not being paid properly. hospitals are not being paid properly. medicare is going to lose $700 billion. doctors are swamped with new paper work, new rules, new regulations, and they've got absolutely no protection whatsoever from lawsuits. they predict 90,000 doctor shortage. 90,000 within six years. 90,000 doctors short. >> you know what? on some exchanges they don't even list

at massachusetts, which under governor romney introduced health care reform plan very similar to what the president is introduced here and in their first month of enrollment only 123 people enrolled for premium paying plans in massachusetts. they had massive enrollment toward the end of the enrollment period. we always expected enrollment figures to be low. we were saying that before october 1st, obviously the website problems have made it worse but that's why we're working every day because the website is just a means to an end. the end here is getting affordable health insurance to americans who haven't had it in the past. >> the administration has called in experts from google and other tech giants to help fix the obama care website and say the site should be fixed by the end of november. >>> here is something for you to consider if you're going over open enrollment options for your health insurance. the obama administration is loosening rules covering flexible spending accounts. cnn's christine romans joins us from new york with more. good morning, clis teen. christine. >> good morning, carol.

happened in massachusetts and they said, look, massachusetts had problems with their rollout too, give it time. >> actually the real problem with the president's plan is not just the rollout. that's implementation and glitches of various kinds. it should have been done better but it wasn't. the real problem is the broken promise, the dishonesty. that's what's really striking. >> it's more that than bad management. >> sure. obviously the systems aren't working and they're frustrated but when the systems are working, millions of people will still lose the insurance they don't want. they're being asked to buy policies they don't want at prices they can't afford. >> do you think the president lied for personal gain? >> i think the president understands. he under they would loose their insurance. that was the nature of the entire product that they put forward. they knew that but they said, well, you can keep your insurance, period, and -- >> characterize that. >> it's dishonest. what starts twisted stays twisted and it's not going to be fixed until we fundamentally reshape obama care or rep
the girl, too. and married robin. but as he began his three-year residency at massachusetts general hospital, there were indications from the beginning that charles and psychiatry might not be the perfect fit. >> part of the residency is that you're supposed to go to a weekly group therapy session and you didn't want to go. >> there were 12 of us residents in mass general, and there was a group therapy once a week. and i didn't go. i thought it's a pointless exercise so i -- i was called in to the chief's office after about seven weeks of non-appearance. he said to me, why aren't you going to therapy? i said, sir, i came here to give therapy, not to receive it. he said you're in denial. i said, of course i'm in denial. denial is the greatest of all defense mechanisms. i could be a professor of denial. i'm an expert. i was going on and on. he wasn't amused. >> he gave an ultimatum. go to group therapy or leave the program. >> so i went to the next 21 weeks of sessions or whatever it was but i didn't really say a word. so whatever people would notice that, they'd say why aren't you ta
massachusetts is we will get those people. >> it was just an eye opener to say potential death spiral four the one of the architects of obama care. >> this is one of these plans where not only do you need about 7 million people to sign up by march 31st but you read the right mix of people, you need people healthy, generally young and haven't felt an incentive and don't necessarily feel incentive to buy healthcare. you need get them it to sign up. these are people who tend to be tech savvy who want to registeron line. they don't want to fill out a paper application and make a phone call. if they don't get the right mix of people it's going to make costs go um. that is actually i think the biggest concern in all of this. put the web site problems aside. put some of these issues with the president's rhetoric aside, if this plan doesn't have the right mix of people, there are going to be pretty widespread policy changes. >> you are not asking healthy people to buy healthcare. you are asking healthy people to buy other people's healthcare. that's a key. it's a matter of people who don't need it
and that is where things stood for four years bu in august of 2011,verything changed. the massachusetts sueme judicial court overturned m toolan's convictn. the court said thereere flaws in the jury selection process and ordered a new trial. the new trial got under way in june. this te at a courthouse on the mainla. for thlochtefeld family going through it a second time was deeply disappointi and woying. >> all of a sudden he wasn't convicted of killingy sister anymore and was as far as i s concerned. >> for tom toolan, it was an incredle second chance. this time the dendant looked thinner than durg the first ial and this time a w defense attorney argued e case. >> this is not a who donit? this is not clear when, how, case. >> robert sheketoff opened with an admission thatoolan did kill bh lochtefeld. what the jury hato decide was why. >> it's a difficult issue to look into somebody mind and figure out what was ing on in that mind. was he a common criminal or was he not? that's thessue. >> it was the insanityefense all over again. dressed up a little diffently presented in court by an attorn

. >> leave that graphic up there. >> if you want mandatory healthcare go live in massachusetts. if you want the free market and individual savings accounts, financial money savings accounts, go live in texas. as uncle ronni used to say you can vote with your feet. when the government attempts to do what only the free market can do. when the government says everybody has got to drive a mercedes whether you can can afford one or not, whether you want to drive one or not, very few people will have cars and everybody will be walking to work. >> you say you want to do away with social security, medicare, and medicaid? >> oob -- absolutely. it would be far better administered. >> you think you can do away with social security and medicare in this country? >> i don't think it could be done with the stroke of a pen and i don't think there is a consensus for it. but, in my world, where the government lives within the confines of the constitution, people are responsible for themselves. it's not the beltway world where you live. people don't look to the federal government to take care of them. >> i th
californians into the program is is a very good sign. we remember that in massachusetts when they passed their health care law in 2006, only 123 people signed up in the first month and the rush came at the end. so all of these are -- these are good signs for the exchanges and for the affordable care act. >> david, i hate to quibble with a nobel prize winning economist but i think that paul has not compared the correct numbers or the ones that are most relevant to the measurement of success in california. it is true that about 22% of the population is 18 to 34 years old and 32.5% of new enrollees are in that age group. but that group represent over 40% of the uninsured. about 42% of the uninsured. california is not capturing them all but they never expected at this stage to be capturing them all. they had a more modest expectation in this first year. and that's one of the things that is present across the board in the expectations. >> i think the other thing is beyond the numbers are the human stories. the washington post had an extraordinarily poignant story. all of these people, many of
than the small numbers expected, don't matter that much in the long run. in massachusetts, young people were among the last to sign up because the initial wave of people are going to be those who need it most urgently. until those young people start lining up later in the game, we need to not turn them off of the system. all of the pundits who are exploiting this for political gain need to make sure they understand the system will be up and running and you do need to sign up for your sake so we don't have uninsured young people and so we're not shouldering the burden of emergency care for all those people. >> kathleen, what do you make of all this? there are skeptics. there are always going to be skeptics when there are big pieces of legislation. this legislation should not be without its skepticism given how it's been rolled out. >> absolutely. i have a couple things to say in response to your point, the young people signing up. the way to push that is to appeal to parents. parents will ultimately have to foot the bill if their kid gets hurt or has some catastrophic event. >> and paren

care in massachusetts got the nomination. >> i would just say if you look at ornstein's book and trace legislative patterns, electoral patterns, governing patterns, the right has swung further right than the left. >> moderate mitt. >> i actually agree with you alex, with all deference to the great grand journalist. i don't think the left, quote, unquote, left of the democratic party has never been as left as the right of the republican party and held the kind of deference and sway in the democratic party that the right has. this is the notion republicans have feared their base in that oh, no we better capitulate them. democrats fear their base as oh, no, we can't be seen associating with them. no one really strong wanted to jump in in 2012. i don't think that will be the cains 2016. is are the democrats holding sway? >> you were in monmouth county. >> when you're in new york where the journalists are you can take the train in five minutes and be in new jersey. we went to new jersey, a survivor story. i went two hours on the train. >> why? >> because republicans there. >> why monmouth c
they may be able to carry it for a year or two, and the state of massachusetts, it took several years to get most of the people enrolled. we may be on a similar track. >> that would be some pretty heavy lifting for washington, then, if it takes several years. you're talking about entire nation. >> right. it's something that i think we will be hearing about quite a bit in the future. >> and the other thing is exemptions. who got exempted from this first year and do you think they are going to extend them? >> well, the employer mandate was what was exempted for the first year. that was the big news. i don't know what the plans are for 2015, i would expect that the insurance companies are going to want to see demand and they will proceed to move them in. >> final question, optimistic about it, pessimistic about it? concerns on a scale of one to 10? >> i think, you know, 20 years from now we will look back on this year and laugh, you know, medicaid, medicare, all these programs actually had rocky starts the first year, but a couple of years in i think this will be part of the scenery. >>
the possibility of an elizabeth warren candidacy for presidency whether the massachusetts senator might challenge hillary clinton. and that's a different kind of unhappiness, the populace rage. you got the income in equality. senator cruz speaks to that. chris christie sfeex that in his candor and bluntness. people will tell you that the youtubes of chris christie speaking his mind will hurt him. i think that's exactly where a lot of the country is right now and it certainly is where the republican base is which will make up some of the steps that you are rightly pointing out to, he starts way behind with that group. he has to prove himself. his move is their move. >> politico's mike allen. mike, always good see you. coming up next he might be the last guy you expect to score, bucs tackle donald penn. throwing down afterwards. dolphins/bucs monday night football. sports is next.

. and that's the memo. now for the top story tonight, reaction. joining us from cambridge, massachusetts, hard university law professor charles ogetry who is a friend to the president. where am i going wrong here, professor? >> well, bill, where should i start? first of all, i love oprah winfrey she has done a great job and i think in her heart if you heard all of her statement, i'm sure all of it will be put on the fox network, she is talking about how things are much better than they were. she was incensed about whand to president obama with comments about race. she didn't say anything that the president said. in fact, he is one who has teflon when it comes to issues of attacking him. he has been attacked by people from start to finish. i think the reality is that he is a good man, he doesn't let race bother him. people say he ♪ race enough. he is too much race. he ignores that and tries to do what's best for the country. you think about it some of these criticisms have not just been about obamacare and people are very critical of that but the reality has been about everything. about
a senator from massachusetts. you had nba players that were playing, you had wealthy african-americans. you had bill russell, wealthy african-americans around the country. not every african-american was poor. >> no. there's always been some -- >> these things happened at the same time. >> and there was, but one did not excuse the fact that others were experiencing racism. but this has become a real campaign with the right wing against oprah, eric. and they are like just jumping all over her. the fox strategy that you talk about? >> what did she do wrong? she talked about race. that's the starting point for all these people. you don't talk about t even when she couched it saying things have gotten better. the fact that she brings up any criticism whatsoever. she was saying barack obama has been disrespected the way no other president has. and that, that's the fox strategy right there. >> let me show you what she said. oprah was asked if it's crossed her mind if this president had been treated differently because he's african-american. listen to what she said. >> just the level of disrespect
myself. cambridge, massachusetts; you don't let the stuff bother you you. consider the source, right? who cares what they say? second letter from linda gardner from south dakota, i hope you and megyn go after the school board in sioux falls for say -- pledge of allegiance. military heros put their lives on the line every day so school board members. they should all be fired. dim wits inflicting beliefs on holidays. >> what's going on. >> sioux falls, south dakota, the school board voted down a proposal that would have required the pledge of allegiance to be said every day at high schools. they voted that down. veterans had been proposing this. >> why did they vote it down. >> they did support it at the middle school level. >> why did they vote it down. >> they said they didn't have time for it. they didn't have time to do it during the day. >> how many seconds 45 seconds. >> 8 seconds. they said it was too chaotic in the classrooms. this it is not a done deal. i spoke with someone who is speaking before the school board next monday. >> keep an eye on it third letter from deanna: heather k
problem is that we have shown in massachusetts that this can work. that young people will sign up. that the incentives will work. the problem we have now is that, there has been so much dust thrown up. so many charges hurled against the affordable care act. that i worry that many of the people that we need off to soon up in order for the pools to work in order for most people to get the benefits that michael was talking about. will hold back. they went sign up. and i think that is frankly wart -- frankly part of the republican strategy. you see it failed. i think the affordable care act could work if given of a chance. all this commotion is not going to make things easier. >> michael. you wrote a become about the struggles of implementing the new deal under fdr. there are similarity here aren't there? >> i think anybody who, who examines the 1930s. and the new deal has to be struck by the parallels between what happened then and what has been happening now. i think the lesson is that any time you up end this status quo as franklin roosevelt did in the 1930s. barack obama has done
to massachusetts, but changed their minds after seeing the forecast. they got a last minute flight instead. >> it was painful. we could have gone to the bahamas for a lot less i think. >> reporter: mother nature doesn't always cooperate with a great thanksgiving escape. once we get through today, forecasters and travelers alike look ahead to sunday, the busiest travel day of the year. so we just saw a delay pop up here at reagan national. we can tell you nationwide there are roughly about 150 delays as we speak. that number is pretty low now. we expect that number will definitely go up. just as far as specific airports, most delays we're seeing is at charlotte, hartsfield in atlanta and o'hare. the most cancellations that we're seeing is boston logan, newark and laguardia. back to you. >> thank you very much. this is one of those stories, very few, where i really hope we're wrong about what we're saying. i hope that they figure out how to handle it. but many of you are in the airports, watching us, but it's airports, other hubs are already filling up with people getting hit with a delay. i
. it was based on a republican idea. we saw it roll out in massachusetts under governor romney. so this notion that somehow this is a liberal agenda is fantasy. putting that aside for a second, when you look at the mechanics of it, every bit policy when you roll out is going to have implementation issues, this is more severe because it's around a website. but that aside, you're going to have more significant signups as you get closer to the deadline. are there going to be people who are holding off who would rather pay the fine or somehow stay on their parent's coverage? yes. but if you're looking at some of the good news that's coming out, people with pre-existing conditions now can get health care coverage. families can now cover their young adults. you've got families who can get preventative health care, the cost curve is being bended down. there are positives that are being outweighed, unfortunately, by the negatives of this rollout. >> final word? >> actually, it looks like the cost curve is bending up. you've seen health care growth slow down since 2004, although it looks as though ther
